science positions every year in the united states cannot be filled by available american workforce positions. and i have positions that need to be filled so that our technology industry can continue to thrive. simply put, u.s. based companies have a great need for those trained in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. but at least right now there are not enough americans trained and ready to fill these jobs. we cannot continue to simply hope that american companies do not move operations to countries where they have greater access for individuals trained in these s.t.e.m. fields. we cannot continue to ignore this problem. it's that simple. continued in action -- especially since the american enterprise institute has confirmed 100 foreign-born workers with s.t.e.m. degrees create an average of 262 additional jobs for nativeborn workers. let me tell you, these countries would love to have the american educated ph.d's and other highly educated individuals return and boost their economies. not only from their acquired skills, but also by creating these new jobs as well.

that opened up hope for six and a half million people. the problem is the united states has never been very good, whether it's in afghanistan, iraq, in creating an alternative and the bol line is the united states basically walked away when it came to how do you create a new state, how do you facilitate the diverse forces, whether it's the tribal elements, more than 300 militias that had formed during that brief eight-month involvement, how do you stem the flow of weaponry and create an alternative. if you saw charlie wilson's war, at the very ending of the movie when he says i raised all this money, billions of dollars for arms to the opposition to fight off the soviets but i couldn't raise a couple of million dollars for education. it's the same kind of problem. we're not good at figuring out what alternatives are and as a result libya destabilized and a lot of the arms that went into libya, a lot of the forces that were militarized flowed not just into mali and algeria but across a huge chunk of northwest africa. as a result you see a huge destabilization that's affect in turn little tun

calls for creating a path to citizenship for those who are already living here in the united states illegally and they also want to reform the legal immigration system that the u.s. has in place and they want to create an effective employment verification system to prevent the hiring of unauthorized workers which will help combat identity theft and establishing an improved process for future workers it to serve our work force needs. tomorrow, president obama is expect today layout his vision for sweeping immigration reforms and billed as a major speech, however, ahead of that and in response to what we heard today out of the senate i thought i would share my views, as a conservative on this topic. now, the issue of immigration has been used as a political wedge by democrats for years. and now, republicans, they have been falsely accused of not caring about latino immigrants because the republicans demand that our borders be secured and secured first. now, let's cut to the chase, if we don't secure american borders, we'll never be safe as a country. this has got to be a top national
to undergo a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered t

and even here in the united states. we could have passed it last year. he we had republicans and democrats -- we had republicans and democrats, not a single senator blocked that passage. i hope we canover come the obstruction. this is a blight on the world community. it's a blight on the united states. we should be taking steps to stop it. we also have to in the judiciary committee continue to exercise oversight when it comes to our nation's counterterrorism efforts to protect the civil liberties of all americans. we'll examine the constitutional and legal issues implicated by the administration's use of droughns abroad. my concern goes beyond the legal force used against suspected terrorists. i am concerned about the growing use of drones by federal and local authorities to spy on americans here at home. this vast emerging technology is cheap, but i think just because it's available doesn't even it helps us. i think there could be a significant threat to the privacy and civil liberties of millions of americans. so just because we have the technology that allows us to spy on each other, le

standards. [speaking german] >> translator: quite often one will have to debate, for example, unit labor cost research, development, efficiency of administration and wage costs that fall within the realm of national sovereignty of the european union member states. the national parliaments would have to give political legit maasty so such -- legitimacy to such agreements that would then be binding so that we all know to what extent competitiveness in the euro area will be improved. there's another road that we shall embark on, namely we should do everything we can in order to insure increased mobility of our labor force within the european single market. we have barriers of language, we have barriers of portability, of social security systems, and this area the possibilities, the potential of a single market needs to be tapped also for a single labor market. and a third thing that we need to do. we have to respond to the question of how this single market, this european single market ought to look in order to be recognized as an important global player on international markets. so we must

. who gets the privilege of becoming a citizen of the united states of america. that's a big deal. when we talk about that in the abstract, it's easy sometimes for the discussion to take on a feeling of us versus them. and when that happens, a lot of folks forget that most of us used to be them. we forget that. it's really important for us to remember our history. you know? unless you're one of the first americans, a native american, you came from some place else. somebody brought you. ken salazar, he's of, you know, mexican american descent but he points out that his family is living where he is for 400 years so he didn't immigrate anywhere. the irish who left behind a land of famine, the germans who fled persecution, the scandinavians who arrived eager to pie out west, the polish, the russians, the italians, the chinese, the japanese, the west indians, the huddled masses who came through ellis island on one coast and angel island on the other. all those folks before they were us, they were them. and when each new wave of immigrants arrived, they faced resistance from those who were al
and communities across the united states of america need to understand that this is going to be hard, tough, long and la boroborious, but it going to be worth it. >> congressman moran, i read on bloomberg that there's an estimation that come 2015 flash flood there is no legislative change, there will be more deaths per year in this country than deaths as a con discrepancies of road traffic accidents. they're anticipating 33,000 gun deaths as compared to 32,000 as a consequence of road traffic accidents in 2015. these statistics are just mounting by the day unless somebody decides to take some kind of action. >> you're absolutely right, martin. it's inevitable that we will have over 30,000 deaths every year, 10,000 of them homicides, 20,000 suicides or accidental deaths, mostly children getting hold of a loaded firearm in their home. this is going to continue to happen, and many of them through massacres of innocent young babies such has happened in newtown. it will happen if we don't take action. >> and yet, congressman, i hear larry pratt, the executive director of gun owners of america, saying
's going to fall apart because he knows his democrats are pretty much united on this but it's the republican party that's split. it's also the republican party that really needs to try and win back hispanic be voters. >> i want to continue this. i'm going to show our viewers a picture. they started roll call in the senate confirmation of john kerry to be the next secretary of state. he will be confirmed. he was unanimously confirmed by the senate foreign relations committee and now he's going to be confirmed by this senate and then the president will have a swearing in ceremony for him. so this confirmation process is moving quickly, gloria, for john kerry. we'll let our viewers know the final vote once it occurs. not all republicans, as you know, are on board. john mccain, mark clindsey graham, there are others that are totally opposed. listen to marsha blackburn. she was on "starting point" earlier tu a day. >> i want to make sure that it is not amnesty. but i have to tell you that this is some of the particulars and legislative language that people want to see. what we've
. mr. mcgovern: mr. speaker, three years have past since the supreme court's dreadful citizens united decision, and we have seen the dramatic increase in the amount of corporate money flowing into our elections, drowning out the voices of ordinary american citizens eager to participate in the political process. citizens united also epitomizes the so-called corporate personhood movement in which some now say the corporations are people. the fact is corporations are not people, and the constitution was never intended to give corporations the same rights as the american people. corporations don't breathe. they don't have kids, and they don't die in wars. my constituents continue to express concern about the growing influence of corporations in our political discourse. they're also demanding action on campaign finance reform because they are repulsed by the large amount of money in our campaigns. and quite frankly, they want elected officials to spend more time on policy, deliberating and debating on issues and less time dialing for dollars. unfortunately, the republican leadership in the
or even the marine corps who were present that morning. 19,000 troops. two units had prepared, had been given advance notice as to what they were doing and they prepared for it in riot control. why all of this for one african-american student who wanted to get an education? it's a brand name university. it's because the whole state was an insurrection from the government to to the statehouse itself statehouse itself down to the 11-year-old who were throwing bricks at us in the streets. it was total chaos, a little mayhem and even the mississippi highway patrol had pulled away so there was your insurrection. it lasted two or three days. the violent part of it and then after that i was appointed to be the security officer for james meredith and went to school with him, or he went to school and i stayed outside with a hand-picked patrol, 12 soldiers and we were there throughout the year. we transferred back and forth in the army was in place for almost a year until he graduated in august of 1963. i was 23 years old. i grew up in an all all-white neighborhood in south minneapolis. johnson,
of a nutrition unit. that is something certainly giving them a boost. they're pain drugs, they also have a sizable market for river toward arthritis. this is why they are doing well. buybacks have been very shareholder friendly over 52 weeks. and spending cuts is something else that pfizer has been working on. how is the dow doing right now. of about 52 points right now. hello, we are at the height of the day. 13,944. connell: getting close. thank you. president obama getting set to unveil his plan for immigration reform. he will have that later in the day from las vegas. haley barbour joins us now. the politics of this have been really talked about a lot. in fact, we talked about it earlier this hour. let me start with the economics of immigration reform. a number of ceos have told us that they would like to see this in the perspective of, hey, let's get some highly skilled immigrants in here that will help the economy. that will help us to get us turned around. your views are what? >> there is no question if we follow what is good economic policy for america we will have immigration re
? >> no question. and this is good news for all of us who believe we need sensible gun control laws in the united states of america. the president is putting the full weight and prestige of the white house behind this. this is a big event tomorrow. the 19 things he can do that are executive power, he can do to tighten up the reporting system but the big three are the three you mentioned in your lead-in. getting rid of high capacity magazines, number one. getting rid of assault rifles, number two. number three, no one purchases a gun in this country without a thorough background check. they have do go through congress and the only way we're going to get them is if the president leads and all of us fighting this fight for decades get rebind him in a big way. >> molly, there's new polling out. two new polls of "the washington post" and abc news and the pew research center shows 60% of americans support a ban on assault weapons. we know that the nra has rejected any idea or notion of a ban on assault weapons and even some congressmen and members of the house of representatives and senate would oppose
that looked like the united states of america and there will be 20 women as you point out among the 100 senators, there will a lot more women and minorities, hispanics and african-americans in the house of representatives. when all is said and done, there are democrats and republicans, and there is a democratic majority in the senate and there's a republican majority maintained in the house of representativess. the president has to deal with those facts of life. in the senate as you know and as our viewers know, on really important issues even though there's 55 democrats, 53 democrats, two independents who will caucus with the democrats, 55-45, even though there will be a democratic majority, you still need 60 to get important stuff done so the republicans will have a little check on that. the house of representatives, i think, the final number is 233 republicans, 200 democrats, two vacancies right now. the republicans still have an impressive majority in the house of representatives. as diversity is important, suzanne, the political parties are pretty important as well. the president i
powerful if the president and key republicans had a united front? >> well, george, this process will begin shortly. another effort here to finally get immigration reform and at that point i think you'll see us working with democrats and republicans, people outside of washington, there's a huge consensus in the business community, in the faith community for immigration reform. so, yeah, our hope is that we can do this. maybe this is an issue that doesn't have to be as hard as it should -- as it needs to be. should be something where there seems to be a consensus in the country. i think there is a political necessity for the republican party to do this and we believe it's the right thing to do for our country and our economy. >> i know you want to put the weight of the president's campaign behind all these issues, new organization, organizing for action, a new political action committee. unlimited donations from corporations, but the president will disclose all donors. >> yes, we will voluntarily disclose all donors and we're very excited. the people who made the president's campaign in both
with a deadly storm here in the eastern part of the united states. there is wind damage all across the southeast, some of it from tornadoes. one death is reported in tennessee, another in georgia. right now the worst weather is crossing georgia. cnn's miguel marquez is in adairsville where there is significant damage. tell us what is going on. >> reporter: huge damage. at least one person, we understand, was killed when a building collapsed but fortunately not where i'm standing, at least not that we know of. this entire area -- this looks like it was someone's -- part of somebody's lunch that was being made is here. across the road, this is the main road in adairsville, georgia. two roads are completely destroyed. you can see the cars that are flipped over and semitrucks are flipped over as well. you can see this was a plant making heavy machinery this morning, 50 to 100 people in this thing. it is completely demolished. everyone, everyone made it out alive and fine. we talked to a couple of employees who said they hid in the bathroom and prayed and prayed but they finally were able to get out
putin came and insult in the united states and every other country in the west which was in interesting diatribe. [inaudible] >> i don't think he was his happiest day after the 60 minutes piece. [laughter] >> why is that? >> i think he is one of the most likeable and congenial men i have ever known in the united states senate and i think chuck would agree. >> i do. >> before you came out we were saying the gang of eight accomplish something rare which was for democrats and for plug-ins coming together on something. usurp together 13 years and senator schumer came to the other body in 1999 i believe it was in the gang of eight started to come together the friday after the election. senator lindsey graham gave you a call on saturday morning and you saw him on your call sheet. you called him and you said what? >> i said hi lindsey and he said -- the lindsey is one of the most effervescent and as john knows the band is back. let's do immigration and that was wonderful. than the next moment he said and i talked to john mccain and he wants to get back involved in my heart when pitter patter.
. >> why the israel does these things and united states does drone strikes is to get at problems earlier before they met -- metastasize into bigger problems. maybe they think we could attack israel and would distract from our own civil conflict. this is to act as deterrents to that sort of thing. there is obviously a short term risk there will be realtation from hezbollah or syria. that is why you've seen the iron dome deployments to israel. in the long run this is met to keep the most dangerous weapons out of the hands of groups like hezbollah. jenna: what do you think is happening now on the ground, michael, that israel would make this move now rather than, let's say six months ago? >> well i think, jenna, you look what happened in gaza for example. there was, seems as though there was probably intelligence indicating that big rockets were being moved into gaza. i think israel tends to act based upon indications of specific an imminent threats, just like the united states does. so there was probably some information that something was being moved from one place to another and of course
